Glad you enjoyed your visit! I'm sure the heat today scared many people away from coming to the park (at least the dry side of it).

Maxx Force really is spectacular

Obviously that means it's 3 feet tall, has 23 launches and has 86 inversions.

Z-Force was 86 ft high, operated for parts of 3 seasons at GAm, and Michael Jordan wore #23. I'm with Andrew/ytterbiumanalyst on this one.
Been you to have any spike, man?

“Summer is FLYING by...” clearly it’s going to be a flying coaster. :roll:

So there's some fresh wood next to Eagle's brake run on the red side, and it gave me an idea.

What if, for 2020, Great America gave Eagle a refurbishment similar to that of Revolution at SFMM? New name, new trains, and some fresh new wood and track.

So, uh, is there a way to change your home park on your Six Flags membership? My friends and I bought our memberships at Great America, but that isn't our local Six Flags - St. Louis is our nearest. I've logged into my membership account and there doesn't seem to be a way to change which park is listed as my home park.... So now I'm getting e-mails about Bring A Friend, but it's for GA and I don't live anywhere near Chicago (friends and I are in Missouri).

Do we have to go to the park to change it? If we go to SF STL, can we change it to our home park there?
